Yup. Weirdly enough: Cat food. My wife just mentioned this to me a couple days ago.

We had to buy something other than the litter we usually use, too. Same reason.

My wife likes rice cakes, come in tube like plastic packs.

Hit or miss at the two grocery stores we shop at.
I buy two or three times what I would normally buy so she doesn't run out between deliveries.

Battery backups for computers. The men’s dress clothes section of department stores is almost nonexistent. I have to order plain white dress shirts online.

And the dog food cans my boys like...

Today will be their first day on a new brand. I hope the change doesn't mess them up.

I was shocked to see the cat food shelves completely bare at my local Meijers. Our cat is too old to hunt for his food. We either have to start feeding him people food or go out and trap rodents for him.

Agree with the comment about "just in time manufacturing". One link in the chain breaks then there goes the whole system.

Another cat food buyer who has trouble finding the wet food they’ll eat. Of course all like different flavors. I’ll buy multiple cases of each when I find it. If I can find it. Those kitties aren’t going to understand switching to beef just due to a shortage. When they want to eat, they want to eat. And now. They don’t care about pandemics, shortages, boats offshore, can shortages or slow shipments.

I'm seeing the same thing here, they used to be always available in different flavors but now they may not be in stock for 2 or 3 days.

They must be bottling smaller batches and not doing different flavors for each batch; whenever they're in stock, they're always the same flavor.

Also the prices have gone up, the little 4-packs went from $5.70 to about $6.20 and the larger bottles went from $2.91 to $3.20

The Granola that I like just went from $3.80 to $5.35 within the last week Mad

Even the local supermarket was almost out (although they’re out or almost out of countless things on a regular basis, so that might not be a sign of anything). In any event it was something I noticed and wondered about.

I have resorted to ordering cat food (canned wet) from Amazon. Today I'm awaiting delivery from an order I placed yesterday. Boomer, my cat, has decided he only likes the Blue Buffalo Tasteful Pate. He will not eat the other canned stuff.

Cat litter has been a little troublesome lately, especially at Walmart. Price has increased about 25% since earlier this year. For years I always kept 4 of those large plastic pails of litter on hand.

I just told my Sister to get a 3 month supply of dog food for her little rascal. She laughed, said it was never any problem getting it. We will see how much complaining comes later.

I don't mind too much of running out of something personally, but I'll not let my cat run out of litter or food. Just will not let the dogs and cats run out.

There were stories a month or so ago about Coffee shortages. I went to Aldi's and bought a couple of those foil wrapped bricks of their coffee, it's cheap and tastes pretty good. A trip to Costco for one of those huge cans of Kirkland Colombian coffee and now I have at least a 6 month supply.

I was in Costco Sunday and they had lots of toilet paper and no limit sign.

Was just at Publix this morning; certain types of packaged cheese, packaged (not deli) cold cuts and sausages, foot powder, cat food, Gatorade and similar, New England Patriots running game, etc...

There are holes on the shelves everywhere throughout the store.
